Gone Fishing
When the world as he knew it falls apart, Marc finds a new calling.


Marc loses his job, his fiancée and his dog in one single week. Left with nothing to lose, he packs up his car, leaves Manhattan and drives to the boondocks where he grew up. He intends to live in the back of the dilapidated fishing shack his dad left him, go fishing every day, and not talk to anyone.

Of course, the small town has other plans for him. The quirky inhabitants soon have him opening the shack again, start an online platform to sell their local specialty "Crocodile Chew-Stew", improve the connectivity, safe the school from closing, and use his cold hard digital skills to make this town a better place - and his home.

Of course, he falls in love with the school teacher. And gets his dog back. And Crocodile Chew-Stew becomes the new rage among hipster Manhattan.

The End.

Please explain how your poster brings the idea of digital leadership to life?

Digital opportunities arise everywhere, and can vastly improve our everyday lives. Marc needed these skills that he acquired in the harsh cold Manhattan job to make his home in the boondocks.

"You can Tackle Anything" has a double meaning - you can achieve anything. And it is a fishing term. Maybe you truly can tackle anything - even swamp alligators.

For fun, you can print shirts or food cans with the "Crocodile Chew-Stew" and hand those out to employees.

Please provide a summary of your film script/storyboard:
